1. a decent pair of earbud headphones for my mp3 player. should probably just wait til i'm in japan already, that's where i bought my last decent set of headphones. still, any recommendations are welcome.
2. a good laptop. i've been looking over the apple ibook and powerbook, strongly considering one of them. i need it basically for internet use, media and storage, and art (both to store my paper work, and to start working on digital mediums...looking at getting into vector art while i'm alone in japan). any input would be appreciated, just so i have things to take into consideration.
thanks in advance for your advice!
